Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - APR 24, 2004
Okay, as is usually the case with this brewer, this beer foamed up like nobody's business no matter which method of pouring or glass style. It poured a light clear amber color with a huge off white foamy head that left latticed lace as it slowly began it's stubborn depature. A medium amount of carbonation is present, surprising, considering the amount of head I would had expected more. An aroma of malt, caramel and alcohol. A flavor of malt, caramel and alcohol with other sweet dark fruit flavors floating around. A medium body and a slightly sweet, yet somewhat bitter finish. A Belgian triple with barley wine elements. A good beer.

neongolden (1332) - Linkping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2016
(355ml bottle from Mikkeller Webshop) Pours a clear dark amber with a huge fine beige head that fades to a cap with chunks of lace. Aroma of honeyed malts with light caramelized touches, nutty faintly toasted grain, orange marmalade, golden raisins, preserved pale pit fruits, dried grass and herbs, light peppery spiciness. Flavour is quite sweet dark honey, demerara sugar, light caramel, lots of dried fruit, especially golden raisins, citrus fruit and apricots, lots of marmalade too, peppery spicy notes, hoppy and herbal, finishing quite dry with fairly high, spicy hop bitterness, resin and citrus, and some alcohol heat, lightly astringent. Medium bodied with soft filling carbonation, booze not totally hidden. Nice, fruity and spicy pale barley wine, sweet but not cloying or overwhelming.

ciocanelu (1731) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 19, 2016
Hazy orange color with off-white head. Aroma has sweet malt, candied oranges, peaches, apricots and a light nutty note. Taste has also sugar notes, not so fruity as the aroma suggested but the nutty note is present on the finish. Body is medium to full and has a smooth feel. Slight alcohol heat and medium bitterness on the aftertaste. Overall it has really nice flavors but the alcohol heats your insides a bit too much.

Ksznet rte Lore-nak! Nem mindennapi főzde palackjra esett a vlasztsom a 700. srpontozs alkalmval, egy Hair of the Dog levadszsa rgta a bakancslistmon szerepelt mr. Ennek megfelelően nemigen tudnk rossz vlemnyt kiprselni magambl Freddel kapcsolatban, de mint ahogy az lenni szokott, ez esetben sem kell kozmetikznom az rtkelsen. Kinzete magval ragad, oplos s sűrű, lettel telt, narancslekvr-kllem, tojshj sznű, pffeszkedő krmhabbal a tetejn. Stemnytszts, marcipnmasszs, grapefruit-dzsemes, vrnarancsos, virgszirmos illatai szambt jrnak, az aroms komlk sznes egyttese hzza a ntjukat. Haraphatan teltek az zjegyek, vibrlnak a trpusi gymlcss tltelkkel megkent pisktatszts, marmalds, dis sznezetű, cifra lesztős, kandiscukorral megszrt elemek, melyek egyrszt belga betsűek, mgis a vrbeli amerikai vonal megtestestői. Sziporkz stlusegyveleg, mely majdnem annyira IPA, mint amennyire barley wine, a mzss sly karakter, a szirupos maltafolyam hmplygse azonban valban az utbbi tpus stlusjegyeinek irnyba mutatnak. Egy ilyen főzet utn mr csak arra lennk kvncsi, milyenek lehetnek a Hair of the Dog egyb, nagynevű alkotsai.

Clear dark golden, thick offwhite head. Malty aroma, fruity with caramel and hops. Malty flavour, notes of vanilla and dried fruit. Quite fruity beneath the hoppy, slightly alcoholic bitterness. Bittersweet with a nicely rough finish.
